Symbion

The history of Symbion

Since its early beginnings, Symbion has been characterised by a unique entrepreneurial spirit. Not just when three idealistic scientists from the University of Copenhagen created a non-profit foundation whose purpose was to establish a close collaboration between the business community and universities, but also in their tireless struggle to create a budding environment that would help new entrepreneurs get started.

More than 30 years after its inception — and with many exciting initiatives along the way — it must be said that Symbion has become the success it planned to be: Well-run IT and biotech companies have experienced huge grown within Symbion walls, and Symbion itself has also grown rapidly. Symbion has now expanded across a total of five locations: at Fruebjergvej, at CBS Campus, at the University of Copenhagen’s North Campus and two locations at the University of Copenhagen’s South Campus.

With its locations at the University of Copenhagen and CBS, and with the IT University as its neighbour, Symbion stays true to the spirit the community sprang from, which is to create links between the university, the established business community and entrepreneurs. Here, startups can test their ideas and benefit from the synergies that arise when several new companies in the same industry share the canteen and coffee maker — and participate in many academic and social events that forge links between individual businesses. The entrepreneurial spirit must still be said to permeate Symbion.

The Symbion Vision

Symbion is owned by the University of Copenhagen, CBS, the Symbion Foundation as well as a number of private shareholders. It has a corporate charter that calls for competence and skills development, which is based on an unadulterated desire to strengthen entrepreneurship in Denmark.

Symbion was established in 1986 and stems from the vision of creating an optimal framework for entrepreneurs by linking research and entrepreneurship together with the knowledge and experience possessed by the more established Danish business community, and by reinvesting profits in new initiatives for the benefit of entrepreneurs and startups. This is the vision we still live by.

We have over 30 years’ experience in helping startup companies to grow. This experience is unique compared to other coworking spaces and entrepreneurial environments.
